i only went to get blood pressure medicine and cough medicine. he told me because i had used 4 different pharmacies he could not write me the prescription. 2 of the pharmacies are walmart. 1 pharmacy is my neighborhood pharmacy andthe other pharmacy was used during an injury case, in which my meds were being mailed from another state(Mass.) he denied me meds based on this or at least that's what he told me the reason was. i was interrogated by the spanish/mexican receptionist as if she was the doctor asking me personal medical questions reserved for doctor patient confidentiality. i felt something wrong from the beginning of the questioning. i asked not to pay until patient is satisfied, advised me in order for doctor to see me he had to be paid 1st(i'm self-pay). bad deal! if doctor doesn't want to write what you are coming there for, then you have to fight and argue to get your money back. which almost happened until i had to tell the doctor i told receptionist money was on condition you write me my prescription which is why we all come to the doctor on the site and use this network. what sense does it make to pay money then don't get what you came for, it puts the patient in a very weird space, asking for money back when it should only be given once the patient is satisfied. never pay for something b4 knowing what you get. policy should be amended/changed in favor of the patients. *Doctor takes your money you want it back he says no police are called they are gonna tell you its a civil matter and you have to leave without your money and tell you to go to court and file a civil complaint but they have your money behind the counter but u have to leave without it. not good for a patient to go through. sidenote: all medication i was requesting i was due for a refill.
